How could you possibly go wrong with Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder together? Joachim Cooder joins on drums and bass. Produced by Ry Cooder; recorded, mixed and mastered by Martin Pradler.

Gets its name (and inspiration) from Smithsonian Folkways FA2028: “Get On Board: Negro Folksongs By The Folkmasters” – which you can still get as a digital download or custom CD.

When you’re young, you might come across something that opens up your mind to mysteries and possibilities . . . . in this particular case, it was a Folkways 10″ LP, called Get On Board, by the Folk Masters, featuring Brownie McGhee, Sonny Terry, and the elusive Coyal McMahan.
